Irony can be a brutal teacher.

 

"Van Horn [Texas] is so healthy, we had to shoot a man to start a cemetery."

 

------ Augustus Sanders Goynes, who coined this civic slogan for the town of Van Horn, was subsequently gunned down during an argument and was the first man buried in the Van Horn cemetery in 1892

Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
